Back in the Rack

It helps me to have at least a general idea of my upcoming workouts, especially during a period like this where it’s easy for me to skip out and stay in me comfy recliner. Last night I mapped out a general idea of doing squat triples and a metcon with some snatches. As I sat in my chair this morning, drinking my coffee, and wasting time on the computer, I finally made the move. Once I take that first step I’m good to go.

My upper body is still a bit sore and I can feel my biceps more than anything this morning.

Strength – Back Squat

  • 6×45#
  • 6×95
  • 6×135
  • 6×165
  • 6×195
  • 3×215
  • 3×235
  • 3×255
  • 3×275
  • 3×295

Fitting when “Get Low” comes on in the middle of a squat session, something is right in the world. Was wearing lifters and put the belt on for the triples. Feels good to be under some weight again.

Conditioning

10:00 AMRAP

  • 15 Push-ups
  • 10 Hang Power Snatches (75#)
  • 15 Sit-ups

Went 9-6 on all push-ups. Was trying to rush through at the end so the 6th set had some short pauses at the top of reps in the set of 6. All unbroken snatches. Really tried to rip those wrists in the turnover, which may help when I get real weight on the bar. Was able to finish the 6th round and get in 3 extra push-ups.

Just what I needed. Now I can pack up and head out of here for a few days. Worked out 3 days in a row for the first time in 3 weeks. I don’t even recognize myself. haha
